Pros: Layout - It's a tale of two cities and both stories aren't that great.

The first 9 is all in a sparse piney type forest with no real defined fairway or rough. All the holes are in the 200' or below range.

Most are straighter shots with a semi tight gap. It mixes it up decently with a few fairways that move left or right.

The back 9 is more open and where there are trees you're throwing around them or in to them mostly. A majority of these holes offer no real challenge other than distance or some OB spots.

There's a creek in play on the front 9, no real disc loss potential. Where there are interesting basket locations it's usually due to OB which is the creek on the front and some fields/courts on the back.

It does offer a nice balance with the open and wooded factor. Course flows well and offers up a quick round.

Atmosphere - Looks to be a heavily used park by other park goers. There's basketball/baseball/tennis going on as well as common BBQ's from what I was told. Probably a good place to bring the family while getting a round in.

Equipment - Nice concrete pads, teesigns with map and distance where they still exist, some are gone.

Trashcans in parts of park and it's pretty clean so that's a plus.
Cons: Layout - The front 9 is boring and some of the holes are plinko. It all feels kinda the same with only a few holes standing out. There's not enough change in distance on the holes really.

The back 9 offers up more fun but less challenge. You can throw a big hyzer on half of the holes and a FH or thumber on the other half.

Some of the holes have you throwing pretty close to other areas of the park that get used. On one you throw over/right next to a fenced in tennis court.

No real elevation of consequence.

Nothing that really stands out which is one of the worst things you can say about a course.

Atmosphere - It's not a scenic place by any stretch. Looks to be pretty old and run down in parts. No real seculsion feeling anywhere.

The other park goers can pose a problem in areas as the back 9 weaves through parts that get heavily used.

Equipment - Some of the tee signs are gone and all of them are old and look outdated. The baskets are getting old and rusty.
Other Thoughts: As I said the front 9 is just boring, if I lived nearby I'd just play the back twice or go somewhere else since they have 2 better courses right down the road.

17 is a fun slightly downhill big bomb, signature hole for sure. 10 was probably my second favorite hole, it's a big anny.

I don't suggest this course unless you're just racking them up.

Pros: Course has accuracy shots and a few good drive opportunities. Good teepads and nice signs for the holes. Not bad for beginners.
Cons: Park traffic can interfere with play. Some shots do not have legitimate paths to throw down (some on the front 9). Difficult to find first tee for visitors.
Other Thoughts: This course gives you an opportunity to throw a few different shots and many holes are very short. The length is somewhat of a pro and a con at the same time. The good thing is that, if you are less than impressed, there are three courses within a few miles.
Would not recommend a thumber over the tennis courts (# 15).
